Historic note . Pennsylvania originally was to be named the state of "New Wales" but whoever the King of England at the time insisted that the territory in some form be named after William Penn's Father who was an admiral and active in english politics at the time.

Never been to Wales so I have no reference but just about everything in SE PA has a very heavy Welsh background.

I would vote for both the Mid Atlantic and New England areas. Virginia, Maryland and the DC metro all have areas that resemble that of England IMO. Places like Old Town Alexandria VA, Annapolis MD, Frederick MD, Old Town Portsmouth VA, Old Town Fredericksburg VA, The Fan/Jackson Ward/Churchill in Richmond VA. DC and Baltimore have multiple neighborhoods that resemble England like Capitol Hill, Georgetown, Fells Point and Canton. There are many small towns in Virginia and Maryland that have Downtowns and Old Towns that could be used as examples. I also believe that the Old Tidewater accent prevalent in older Virginians is unique and certain pronunciations of words can be attributed to England along with our non-rhotic dialect. You can still find this accent in areas from Petersburg/ Prince George, to Norfolk and the Eastern Shore of VA.

People are referring to the climate when they are mentioning PNW. The summers here are dryer than England but the rest of the year is pretty similar. Cloudy and wet with similar temps. Architecture wise it is gonna be somewhere in New England Id say.
